Vail of North Pomfret recently sold five thoroughbred Jersey cows for $100 each, and E. Y. Dana of the same place seven at $90 each. The pro prietor of a fancy farm, Worcester, Mass., was the buyer. Congressman Powers spoke on the financial bill during its debate in Congress and made a strong plea for the gold standard. During his short speech he was sharply questioned by Mr. Terry of Arkansas, but Mr Powers held his own very well. He has been quite active in the House the past month, being an active member on the investigating com mittee.that is considering the case o Mr. Roberts of Utah. Our Senators have been given im portant committee positions in the present Congress. Senator Proctor retains the chairmanship of the com mittee on agriculture and forestry He is on the committees on coast defences; on the District of Columbia on fisheries; on military affairs; and on the Philippines, six very impor tant committees. Senator Ross is chairman of the committee to ex amine the branches of civil service and ison thecommitteeson engrossed bills, and on territories. A Question Well Answered. The Celestial Empire of Shangha is perhaps the leading paper publish ed in the Orient in the English lan guage and the comments of this journal on our policy in the Philip pines are always interesting andsug' gestive. A recent number of thi paper answers the oft repeated ques tion of those opposed to the I'resi dent's policy, "Cui bono," for wha good is all this expense and sacrifice of men. Here is their answer : "II America will only regard her new possessions us 'held in trust tor cmliza tion' there is scarcely any limit to bless ings which will result from her govern ment of them. Nor will her own reward be smnll. ll we are riht in our interpre tation o) the signs of the times, Ameriet has already begun to reap the harvest she has sown. We do not now speak of any increase in ner trade; we have i mind the quickened and extended feel in ol the American people that an imperial mission aemanaea i; a competent an clean civil service, inaccessible to part manipulation ; (2) a settled and stabl system of finance: and (3) a renovated and reorganized diplomatic and consular crvice. in striving to oive me prooiems oi weaker peoples, America may not in probably find the solution of some per picxiuci ana ainicumct oi ner own. done to Their Reward. The year closes with the deaths cf some very prominent people and the necrology of the past week includes the Duke of Westminster, Dwight L, Moody, Dorman B. Eaton and Daniel S. Ford. The first named in our list was the richest man in Eng land and left a fortune of over $100, 000,000. Evangelist Moody's death was not unexpected as he was strick en down with a heart trouble while preaching in Kansas City about a month ago. He was one of the greatest men of the century and has one more for the salvation and edu cation of the people of England and merica than any one else. Mr. Eaton was a native of Hardwick, where he was born June 27, 1823, was a graduate of the University of Vermont, and is best known for his fforts to improve the civil service. Mr. Ford was for 40 years the pro prietor, publisher and editor-in-chief of the Youth's Companion. He gave the closest attention to everv detail f that paper, and was a man of generosity and full of good deeds. Letters to Santa Claus. . Johnaburr Men ITang up Iheir Stockings. Dear Sir: I beg to sav that if you see fit to conler on me the United States senatorship as a Christmas remembrance it will be greatly ap preciated.

My Dear Sir: I find there is one ilt which would be acceptable to me on Christmas and that is a United States senatorship. I am an expan sionist all right. I would also add hat if you do not see fit to grant my request for goodness sake don't lve the thing to Grout. C. A. P. Dear Old St. Nick: I have been glad that I succeeded in obtaining a pension and back pay for you, as a man ot your age needs the comforts t will bring. In distributing gifts this year I shall be more than pleased o have you drop a United States senatorship into my stocking. In fact you must do so without fail. By the way, I trust you find the duties of the postmastership which I fought so hard to obtain for you, both congenial and lucrative. Please notecartully my request above. W. W. G. P. S. Don't give anything to Dil lingham; he is infernally obstinate and awful selfish. Dear Santa Claus: I don't know as I need to ask you fon anything this year. I want the governorship but I think I am sure of it, Christmas or no Christmas. W. W.

Boston Herald. An effort will be again made dur ing the present session of Congress to pass a law requiring publication of the pension roll. The roster needs airing. Every deserving pensioner will favor the bill, as every sneak bounty jumper and pension attorney will be against it. The pension list should be a roll of honor, and the un worthy names which fraud and greed may have registered there should be hung up in full view of the public which has the bill to pay.

Resolutions in the Senate The Next Republican Convention Ex-Mrnalor (tuny Polygaraisl Postmasters- Anni versaries. (From our regulur correspondent.) That the Senate will support the administration in the present war was indicated, when the first test vote of the anti-expansionists was taken upon Senator Pettigrew's resolution, asking that the Secretary of the Navy report whether Admiral Dewey ever saluted the flag of the Philippines since May 1, 1898, or whether the vessels ever carried their flag in Manila harbor? The resolu- ion was de eated, for Senator Chandler moved to have it tabled, for be felt sure that it would be cabled to Manila; the vote stood 41 to 20. Senator Hoar was the only republican who voted for it. It has been decided tohold the next Republican Convention in Philadel phia. The final contest lay between Chicago and Philadelphia. The committees from the states and dele gations from leading cities were allowed one hour each to present their claims, but it was thought that Philadelphia made a combination with the southern contingent in order to deleat the Payne resolution, and they offer a fund of one hundred thousand dollars, the exposition buildings and ample hotel privileges. Mr. Payne of Wisconsin has labored most faithfully to change the basis of representation in the National Conventions by the votes cast in a Presidential election. He argues that the present system is a matter of injustice to the densely populated states. By his arrange ment New York would have the largest number of the 894 delegates f there was one delegate for every 10.000 votes. Mississippi has one delegate for 285, while New York has only one delegate for 11,000 persons. The new plan would reduce the number in the southern states; hence, they were resolved to fight it. President McKinley is the candidate and he is opposed to the new measure. It is thought Secretary Root may be a candidate for the place as Vice President, although several names are mentioned. It is quite probable that the old system of two delegates from each district and four delegates at large may be retained. The arguments for seating ex Senator Quay again in the Senate were made by Gen. Elkins, while Mr, Carsons, who was on the other side, claimed that there had been three decisions by the Senate on a similar question and they all forbade the seating of Mr. Quay. Ex-Senator Edmunds also brought out some strong arguments on the negative side. By a special rule, Representa tive Overstreet of Indiana, chairman of the House currency bill, intro duced the general debate upon Mon day and the discussion continued all the week, with three evening sessions, until Saturday when the five minute rule prevailed, and the vote was to be taken on Monday, the 18th. Representative Overstreet predicts it will pass by about a majority of 36 if all unite that are expected (185 republicans and eight democrats). The United States marshal! of Utah affirms that he knows of only two postmasters, Messrs. Graham and Smith, who have been accused of being polygamists, but being prominent citizens they were not suspected by the Gentiles at the time, until one and a halt years alterwards John C. Graham will have a trial in Salt Lake City and Smith is nowout of orhce, so there appears to be only one Federal appointee accused and the United States marshal has not executed the law since Utah was admitted to statehood, Jan. 4, 1896; now it is a matter for state law. The month of December thus far has been remarkable for the observ ance of anniversaries; oue of the most important in the nation's history is that of the centennial of George Washington's death upon December 14. The various patriotic societies ot the District held appro pnate services at 4 p. m. in the church of the Epiphany in this city. i ne Doay ot tne church was reserved for the members ot the Organizations Flags decorated the church. Bishop Satterlee ol Washington, aided by ur. K. ti. JvleKim, Dr. Mackav Smith aud the chaplain of the societies ofliciuted at the service which opened with the organ prelude. Beethoven's "Funeral March on the Death of a Hero," followed by the processional hvmn, "Thy Name, O Jesus, Be Forever Blest." There was a special prayer ot thanksgiving preparea lor tne occasion and Kin ling's Recessional hymn set to music ot JJeKovens. The assistant Secre tary of State, D. J. Hill, made an able address. He eulogized Wash ington as the great unselfish leader ot American patriots, who became the "nation's builder," who with Hprnilton founded a policy to fill the country with happY industry and create the expanding forces to press our commerce Deyond distant oceans Would such a man allow despotism to disturb the peace and prosperity of those places brought under our protection? Bishop batterlee read an extract from Washington's fare well address, beginning with "Be Americans!" The choir sang the Allelulia by Buck and the whole con gregation rose and sang "The Star Spangled Banner," closing with the recessional hymn and "The Dead March from Saul," by Handel. Ihe George Washington Memorial Asso ciation held a three days' session iu the banquet hall of the Raleigh hotel. The leading objtct of the society is to raise $250,000 to build a splendid memorial hall hire which will form the administration building for a national University as suggested by Washington in his will, for the puiposeof higher education. Mrs. bilen A. Richardson of Boston has been called the mother or great pro moter of this society. It is said that Washington left $25,000, or stocks and shares amounting now to that sum in his will. The society was started in 1897 and a great deal of aggressive pioneer work has been done, but there seemed to be a crisis in the business affairs that has occa sioned some friction amongst the various committees. Mr. Smith acted as parliamentarian for the president at the sessions and Col. H. H. Adams of New York city as counsii for the committees. Mrs. L. D. M. Sweat of Maine was elected for the next president, and it all ended harmoniously. There was a very fine memorial meeting in La fayette Opera House Thursday even ing, with many prominent educators for speakers andanimmenseaudience of leading citizens. The building was beautifully draped with the national colors. Music was fur nis :ed by the Fourth Artillery Band and the Choral Society. John A. Kasson introduced the speakers, who eulogized Washington and endorsed the Memorial Association, its work and purpose. When the national song was sung, the stars and stripes formed by electric lights above the Choral Society on the platform, waved back and forth with magical effect. The meeting was a great success. A. M C. Washington. D. C. D.-c. 18, 1899. The Han with the Hat. Clark Howell, the editor of the At lantic Constitution is the greatest orator of the South today and the following burst of eloquence is from his speech at Buffalo on the evening of Dec. 20 : How many. Americans are there who stand, figuratively, with their hats in their hand, to the honot of their country and the glory of its institutions? Who does not follow with patriotic, but pa thetic devotion the hardships of the boys who are lined tonight in the trenches in the Philippines, fighting lor your flag and tor mine, enduring toil and pnva- tion aud sacrificing their lives that they may carry the light of civilization and the message of American progress and prosperity, and plant them upon the battlements ot darkness and discord After awhile it will all be over. Peace will be won and then our real work will begin The school teacher will supplant the soldier and the caravans of commerce will be substituted for the caissons of artillery; our mission will be understood and our ellorts will not be hindered. Instead of our arsenals, our manufnc tories will supply the tonnage that will make the broad bosom ot the Pacific heave in the welcome embrace ot our ex tended commerce. And when this is done, when our mis sion shall have been lulfilled, when peace reigns and law and order are established, when the "sword shall be beat into the plow-share" and the ravs of the tropical sun shall kiss the fertile fields of the Phil ippines, smiling in the plentitude of abundant harvests, and the homes of tluir people shall be merry with the music ot contentment mav we not won der, hat in hand, in humble acknowledg ment of divine Providence which "tloeih nil things well," if the immortal Grady was inspired when he said : "1 catch the vision of the republic its mighty forces in balmier, and its unspeakable elorv falling on all its children working out us mission under uod s approving eye, until the dark continents are opened and tne Highways ot the earth established and the shadows lifted, and the jargon ol nations stilled, and the perplexities of the Babel straightened-and' under one language, one liberty and one God, all the nations of the world, harkening to the American drum-beat and girding up their loins, shall march amid the break ing of the millennial dawn into the paths ot rignteousness and ot peace." January Magazines. The Delineator comes to the editor's desk in a new cover and keep9 the American women thor oughly posted on the world's lead ing fashion's. For 27 years this magazine has been published by the Butterick's and it has always been a favorite by all lovers of dress. Beginning with 1900 the Popular Science Monthly is reduced in price to $3.00 a year and with this reduc tion in price will come a broadening of the topics discussed and the at tempt to make the magazine more popular and entertaining. A third feature of the new departure will be the employment of distinguished specialists as writers on their respec tive subjects, who arc able to present their ideas in a form suited to the general reader, and whose names give what they have to say the stamp of accuracy and authority The writers in the January number include President Jordan of Ltland Stanford University, Herbert Spen cer, Sir Robert Ball, president of the Royal Astronomical Society and many other leading scientists an educators. Qod's flessage to Man. God laid a Burden on me when I came To mnn'i eHtate. At first I took It sore, And grieved because ray freedom wan no more. And wrought unwillingly. Ah, met the tnanie, The blindness of It I Afterwards I saw The blessedness, the crown, of duty's law. Then Disappointment came, and I rebelled And thought it uod's unkinuness. uay oy day I wept, because my will was not God's wnv. And childish, bitter thoughts within me wellea. But afterwards, O Father! when I had Life's best through that refusal, 1 was glad. And laBt, and bitterest of all, came Grief. Then was I sure that God bad struck in wrath. How deep the night that closed about my nnth No gleam of hope, no comfort, no relief! but lignt was in tne gloom, tnougn i was blind; I see it now all life transformed, refined. So I have learned to bide God's purpose. Sure am l He ooeth naught tor us amiss. Pain is His shadow when He stoops to kiss. And sorrow Is His fire to make us pure. O, Father! by Thy very tatheihood, We do believe Thou sendest naught but good) James Buckham, in Zion's Herald Rev. Mr. Sheldon's Creed. The author of "In His Steps," which is now running as a serial in the Caledo nian, has adopted a shorter creed, so simple, be says, that a child can under stand it, but one that embodies all the essential pledges ot the old Congrega tional covenant. It is as follows: Dearly beloved, called of God to be his children through Jesus Christ, we give hearty thanks to God, who, by his spirit, has opened your eyes to see and your heart to receive Jesus as Lord, and who has led you to present yourself here to conless him and to unite with his church. Now, before God, your Heavenly Father, and fesus, his son, and in the presence of his people, you promise to devote yourselves during your whole life to the love, service and obedience of Tesus Christ. You promise to walk in his steps so far as you know them now or may hereafter learn them through his holy scrip! ures and to do his will so far as you may be able, through the help of the Holy Spirit. You do cordially unite yourself with this church of Christ, and yon promise to share with us in its .wor ship and work, by attending the services of the church, by aiding in the financial and social work of the church, and by taking niton yourself such responsibilities as you believe belong to you as a mem ber ot this church. Do you so promise ? Now, unto him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you faultless before the presence oi his glory with ex ceeding joy, to the only wise God, our baviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and forever.
